    Abstract

    A monolithic half-wave hybrid variable thickness radome (hy- VTR) is proposed here for airborne applications. The 3-D ray-tracing (in conjunction with aperture integration method), which is adapted here to evaluate the radome performance parameters, facilitates efficient analysis of antenna-radome interactions. The optimized power reflection hy-VTR design is established to be superior to the conventional constant thickness radome (CTR) designs in terms of the EM performance.
